Learning Opportunities

Genetics and Genetic Testing

There is a very limited amount of education for providers on genetics and genetic testing so UAB is pleased to offer two new CME courses on these topics.  Dr. Bruce Korf, the director of the Heflin Center for Human Genetics and chairman of the Department of Genetics at UAB, developed and presents both courses.  Understanding Population Genomic Screening discusses the differences in current genetic testing methods for determining an individual’s genetic health and reviews when population-based genetic screening may be valuable to patients.  During Interpretation of Genetic Test Results Dr. Korf talks about how laboratories determine if genetic variants are relevant to a person's health and examines the modern concept of precision medicine. Participants will earn 0.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM for each course. Click here for more information.
